Why Worry About Your Home’s Landscaping
Many people shrug off their home’s lawn and garden because they do not see it as a priority. We have a million things going on every single day including doing the laundry, going to work, washing dishes, and taking our kids to soccer practice. This list goes on and on, so who has time for something as meaningless as landscape design and installation Bethesda?
The main reason people worry about their lawn and garden is that of pride. It is the same reason we worry about the look of the paint both inside and outside of our homes. It is the same reason we get our cars washed. We care about what we look like on the outside, and we care about what people think about us. When you see a well-kept lawn with no weeds and no brown spots, what do you think? Most people think, “Wow that family has it all together.” Little do they know, this family has chosen to use D & A Dunlevy for their landscaping services.
Now I am not talking about the bare minimum that almost everyone manages to do – cutting the grass when it starts getting long, pulling out the noticeable weeds, picking up any trash that happens to blow into the yard, and raking the leaves that collect during the fall seasons. I’m talking about taking that extra step or even going the extra mile to make sure your yard is in tip top shape. This could include, but is not limited to edging the yard, planting a small flower garden, weed whacker, and watering any spots that start to turn brown.
If you do not care about your lawn for your pride, then you should still care. Wondering why? One of the biggest reasons to maintain your yard other than pride is to increase the curb appeal of your home. People do a lot to maintain and improve the curb appeal of their homes. Many people re-do their driveways, change the color of their doors and shutters, re-paint, plant trees and shrubs, and of course landscaping. The curb appeal of your home is the first impression that people get when they look at your house. Someone who is looking into buying your house (assuming you will sell it at some point) will have a snap judgment as soon as they pull up in front of the house. Of course, what the house looks like on the inside is important as well.
In case neither of those is enough to get you to care about your landscaping, then how about this: If your lawn looks nice, then you are more likely to spend time outside. If you and your family spend time outside, you will get more Vitamin D, fresh air, and exercise. If you spend time outside rather than inside playing video games and watching TV, then you will also likely save on your electricity bill. Doesn’t that sound nice?
